What if Pakistan is banned ?

Pakistan appears reconciled to the fact that they have lost the opportunity to host World Cup 2011 in their soil.

However, they are concerned about how the Government of India will react to letting the Pakistan team and their supporters into India for the World Cup.

This is indeed a legitimate worry. The BCCI has been maintaining that the GOI has stopped them from sending their team to Pakistan. Similarly, the Pakistan player’s participation in the IPL was jeopardized for the same reason.

As both Governments seem disinclined let go the rhetoric, it is doubtful whether things would change dramatically overnight.

So let us hope ICC’s Chairman David Morgan comes up with a solution when PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt meets him on Tuesday.

under the guise of Pak cricket fans, what if terrorists sneak into India? Am sure it will be with the full blessings of the Pak govt now that they have lost the tournament hosting rights.

Afterall their motto has been "neither will i be happy nor let you be happy."

I agree with you that there is a lot of time. However, I feel Pakistan is correct in getting assurances before hand.
